Our Trainer

Patti Kiersted moved Glenview Farm to Zayante Creek Equestrian Center June 1, 2003. Along with Patti came a fun, energetic group of horse enthusiasts that thoroughly enjoy their horses. There is strong sense of camaraderie and that gives our barn We have been very fortunate to have her at Zayante Creek Equestrian Center.
